Matri 'at peace' in Florence

Alessandro Matri has admitted that he is at ‘peace’ since leaving Milan and joining Fiorentina last month.

The striker, who failed to set the world alight at San Siro, signed a six-month loan with the Viola in January.

And the former Juventus man has conceded that he is enjoying life with the Tuscan side.

“I was in a tunnel at Milan,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport. “I wanted to do more there, but I failed.

“I take all the responsibility for that. But I was doing it internally when I was there.

“[Coach Vincenzo] Montella has given me the one thing that I needed – peace of mind.

“I suffered with a lack of confidence, but I came here and scored straight away which made me feel a lot better.”
